Oh,I don't think we need fancy titles for our images Ann !!
A fine shot here.
Although I would have called it,
''A Herbacious Perenial Study In Lavender''
But that is just me !!

The texture is just right Ann, so far foxgloves have defeated me. This image is a beauty.

I like Mick's idea, and so have come up with "spike of finger-like flowers of the biennial herbaceous digitalis purpurea shrub", but seriously, I like the detail you have captured, rather than the whole flower, showing some closed and some open fingers with the pretty spotting inside.

"digital Digitalis" - and I agree with Carole, taken loads and given up!! Like the texture, Ann, and the matt tones.

Excellent. I find these very difficult flowers to photograph, they're so regular.
I'm seeing a lot more interest in them here.

Wonderful!! Is that a touch of backlighting I can see around the stem?

I think so... the smallest amount. Smile

This is an excellent image in every way except one. Composition.
It, like so many images, is dead center. That speaks of 'document' rather than art. Leaning against the left frame may be .. will be better. With a slight left lean is ok too.
Also, diagonal, corner to corner can sometimes work.

Everybody loves you Foxglove just as is, so rest assured it's good. I just can't resist your invitation to comment critique-wise. TG

just love Mikbee's comment .... SmileSmile
such a pretty colour especially the interior. I would also line to see the full bloom
You'll soon be an expert in lightroom and a few other software bundles, a soft but pleasant subdued image Ann, it would make a nice image on a Birthday Card. That's a compliment not a criticism.

Lovely close up.. I like the "pyramid" arrangement .. ( heavier at bottom than top)
Great details of this very photogenic flower

Your texturing is so appropriate to the subject which you have captured so well, Ann. The foxgloves are such lovely flowers to capture but challenging in so many ways.
You have got a fine image here though.

One of my favourite flowers - unusual I think to see so many of the blooms closed. One or two of them even appear to have slight indigestion Grin
I rather like the effect, it's gentle and rather sweet. And the discreet rim-lighting is a treat.

I collected some fine weather for you yesterday but it escaped overnight Sad

A nicely worked image Ann, and we have one just like this in our Garden, but it was supposed to have been White Smile

Lovely processing Ann and the way you have framed the image drawing the viewer towards the light catching the stems "hairs" is very clever.

Not an easy flower to photograph but you've done really well here and presented it so superbly. The textured background works well
